When a child dies

When a child dies the death is a terrible shock and one of the most devastating things that can happen to a family. If you are reading this because your child has died, we are so sorry for your loss.  There are a lot of resources available to help you through this time and some of these can be accessed at Lullaby Trust and Child Bereavement UK

Child Death Reviews

This leaflet is for parents and carers of a child under 18 who has died.  It tells you what happens in the child death review. The death of any child is a tragedy and it is vital that all child deaths are carefully reviewed. This is so that we may learn as much as possible from them, to try to prevent future deaths, and to support families.
